Today is my last day of reports. I intend to continue with Rising Heroes for another sixty days at least. I have enjoyed my time here and have seen many improvements in strength, stamina, and generally just the way that I feel. My measurements do not reflect much change however. I gained 2.6 pounds but lost a total of 3.5″ from around my body. I do not know if I’ve gained muscle and lost fat since I do not have the tools needed to measure such a thing.
That seems like it should be a failure. It seems like I should be saying “Rising Heroes is a failed experiment for me”.
But it is not.
I am here to tell you that if you have a month like mine. If you have a month where you gain weight instead of lose it or it doesn’t seem like you’re making any progress, don’t give up. Revisit the reasons you decided to try this thing in the first place. Keep going for a little while longer. And then if you still haven’t seen the changes you want, make adjustments. The hardest decision you will ever have to make is whether you are going to try harder or you are going to change direction. But don’t quit. Turn the car, don’t turn it off.
I started the month with the intention to be healthier and stronger. That is why my measurements don’t really bother or surprise me. I decided at the beginning of the month that they wouldn’t at the end. I made tremendous progress in the direction of my original goals. Healthy and Strong. Those things are immeasurable. They can’t be measured. That doesn’t mean they are not tangible and that is my focus. That has been my progress.
My missions are complete for today. I’m proud and thankful to have had you along for this adventure. I shall give another report from time to time to keep you updated. For now, end transmission.
